    History of Pevensey Castle. Pevensey Castle’s impressive ruins stand on what was once a peninsula projecting from the Sussex coast. This naturally defensible site, first fortified by the Romans, was most famously the place where the Norman Conquest of England began, when William the Conqueror landed there on 28 September Pevensey is a village and civil parish in the Wealden district of East Sussex, main village is located 5 miles (8 km) north-east of Eastbourne, one mile ( km) inland from Pevensey settlement of Pevensey Bay forms part of the parish. It was here that William the Conqueror first landed on and invaded England in after crossing the English Channel from Normandy, France.

    Between Pevensey and the South Downs is the ancient parish of Westham, which also incorporates the villages of Stone Cross and Hankham.

The parish occupies a ridge at the western end of the Pevensey Levels.   Here are five lessons to cover the Historical Environment study for Pevensey Castle - the site study for AQA’s exam. The resources referred to are in the Pevensey Castle pack supplied by the exam board.

    Pevensey - History The town of Pevensey was originally built on one arm of Pevensey Bay, a tidal lagoon extending some four miles inland from the present coastline. It is thought that, as a port, it reached its highest peak of prosperity in about the eleventh century, and that from about its harbour was in decline, owing to natural silting. Of the Roman Saxon-shore forts in Britain, only two, Porchester Castle (Portus Adurni) and Pevensey Castle (Anderidos) or Anderita or Anderida), have survived mainly have survived because of their use as castles during the medieval period. Of the two, Porchester is visually the most impressive, but Pevensey had the most important role in English history.
